Supporting Communities and Their Animals

We Need Your Help

Animal management is an ongoing struggle for many First Nations communities in BC. Many people have limited resources, are isolated and have no access to veterinary care. As a result, animal populations become unmanageable, and animals can suffer from disease, neglect, and death.

Science, research, consultation and experience have taught us that spay and neutering alone is not effective. To succeed, a comprehensive approach is needed.

With your support, together we can create a more humane society.

— Rudyard Kipling

About Us

Spirit’s Story

This is the story of little Spirit, who lost her life to distemper after coming into our home.

She is one of the many reasons Spirit’s Mission is dedicated to eliminating disease, neglected and unwanted litters of dogs and cats in remote, isolated communities.

The call came from a remote community just after Christmas. A pup had been immersed in gasoline and needed help. Would I take her?

Our partner rescues are critical to our work. When an animal can no longer be cared for, or needs to be re-homed, our partner rescues are there to do what they do best, and finds the best home there is for the animal to be adopted into.
